Southern Miss Athletics Press Release

HATTIESBURG, Miss. – The Black squad accumulated 369 yards of offense on its way to a 45-25 victory over the Golden team in Southern Miss' annual Black and Gold game, Saturday afternoon at M.M. Roberts Stadium.

 

"I really thought, throughout the spring, that we improved on the things that mattered; attitude, energy and body language," said Southern Miss head coach Todd Monken. "I thought our guys were flying around. There was more energy. It was productive for what we were trying to get accomplished. We're still a ways away, but today was another day for our guys to get out in The Rock and compete."

 

Jalen Richard led all rushers with 12 attempts for 139 yards and a touchdown. He also added three receptions for 33 yards and a score. George Payne led the Gold Team with 12 rushes for 49 yards.
